  2. THE GREAT BEAVER HUNT FOR THE HEARTH OF THE HOMELAND. Issued by Palace Custodian, Marian Blackwood On this 5th day of Msitza ag Dargund of 491 E.S. VA BIRODEO HERZENAV AG EDLERVIK, There has been a concerning development. After various encounters with beavers in the recent past, a sudden crowd of have invaded the Palace. Likely sourced from a suspicious tipped barrel placed in the hall, these chittering creatures are angered and violent, with an apparent (and concerning) desire for conquest. The beavers have been spotted in the meeting rooms, in the grand hallways, in the lounges, and most disturbingly, They have gone about disrupting meetings, terrorizing the residents of the palace, stashing away food, and meeting any attempts to toss them out with the utmost resistance and audacity. I call upon the citizens of the Kongzem to please, please, please help me to rid the palace of these river rats. Bring your nets, your breaves (lest they find your shins), and your bravery. We will be having a hunt, and we will be having a feast. I can’t believe that I’ve just written this, DLUM VE EDLERVIK AG VE BIRODAL, Her Royal Majesty, Amaya of Venzia, Queen-Consort of Hanseti and Ruska, Princess-Consort of Bihar, Dules, Lahy, Muldav, Solvesborg, Slesvik and Ulgaard, Duchess-Consort of Carnatia and Vanaheim, Margravine-Consort of Korstadt, Rothswald, and Vasiland, Countess-Consort of Alban, Alimar, Baranya, Graiswald, Karikhov, Karovia, Kaunas, Kavat, Kovachgrad, Kvasz, Markev, Nenzing, Torun, Toruv, Valdev, and Werdenburg, Viscountess-Consort of Varna, Baroness-Consort of Esenstadt, Kraken’s Watch, Kralta, Krepost, Lorentz, Rytsburg, Thurant, Venzia and Astfield, Lady of the Westfolk, etcetera His Excellency, Fabian Otto d’Arkent-Kortrevich, Grand Lord of Hanseti-Ruska Marian Blackwood, Palace Custodian of Hanseti-Ruska
  3. TO BE HAESENI FOR THE HEARTH OF THE HOMELAND. PENNED BY THE HAND OF MARIAN BLACKWOOD My final piece under the wardship of the Grand Lord, Fabian Kortrevich. On this 10th day of Tov ag Yermey of 490 E.S. VA BIRODEO HERZENAV AG EDLERVIK, I have grown up in the Heart of the Kongzem. My wardship here has been the most fantastic experience of my life. The wardship has been my entire life, really. I have learned many things- I have learned of the courts, I have learned of etiquette, and most of all; I have learned what it means to be Haeseni. The courts of Haense are the life of the Kongzem. The courts, from the Grand Lord, who I learned under, to the party attendees, to the ever so slightly exasperated party planners, are the very culture, life, and soul of the Kongzem. You can see that culture in the festivities and brilliantly adorned dances of Lifstala, you can feel that life as you walk between bustling stalls at the House fairs, and you can be that soul when you sit down for a drink at the tavern after a game of axe-throwing in the cellar. The etiquette of Haense is the breath of the Kongzem. Ever since I was a girl, I’ve been taught my manners. My rehearsed introductions, and my near-fantastical way that I’d managed to dodge dancing lessons. It is those manners that bring out the very best in a person. It is a breath of cold fresh air, when you hear a Prevja, that it may let you know you are home. The people of Haense are the lifeblood of the Kongzem. It is there in the way the Brotherhood stands by the gates, and marches in their lines; how you know each one by name and have since you were a child. It’s how you bond with the people around you until you are family before you realize you always were. It’s being the bairn running around and ducking behind tavern counters, to being the adult giving the hiding children hot cocoa as they giggle away. It’s being raised by a million people, the saying “It takes a village” making its way into your very being. The Kongzem of Haense is a heart, beating, and living. It is warm with the life of the courts, in the bustling squares and brilliant ballrooms. It breathes with each word spoken, as you introduce yourselves with the titles you keep, and then dismiss them after five minutes when you feel dear enough to the other. The people course through the streets and the trials and the world, holding each other together like they’re family. And the most brilliant thing that I’ve learned in my wardship, is that they do so because we are one. DLUM VE EDLERVIK AG VE BIRODAL, Firress Marian Blackwood, Alderwoman of the People’s Duma

    You’ve just arrived in a swampy, dim town. As you look around, your gaze is met with shacks and cabins. It smells of rotted wood and wet moss. You duck and step into a tattered tent, illuminated by a series of candles suspended in the air. At the back of the tent, an old hag raises her head, “What brings you to this dingy town? she begins, then pauses to study your face—”Ah, it’s you. I’ve been expecting you. Sit,” she gestures at a cushion, “Tell me your story.” ((How do you respond?)) The young human was on edge as they crept through the unfamiliar town, hugging their shawl close, hands clasped around the edges to pull them even closer. Their eyes darted from side to side as they entered the tent... This WAS where they'd been meant to go, right? "Well, there was a job.... offferrrr?" Their voice slowed, a quizzical- if not suspicious- brow raising as the woman inspected their face. Listening to her further words, they had a magnificently swift change of heart! "You know what, thank you kindly, but I don't. Really need the, money anyways, so." They backed out slowly, before spinning around and bolting back out the door. Too creepy, in too many ways. "Thank-you-alright-BYEEE!" They shouted quickly, not waiting to hear the response from behind them, nor to catch their breath once til they were back out of the town.
